Bannon retains counsel, expected on the Hill next week

"It has been determined that theres been no collusion", Trump said.

"Democrats and Republicans have drastically different views on whether Trump will be cleared of wrongdoing in the Russian Federation probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller", he said, according to Politico.

Then-FBI Director Comey revealed the existence of the investigation during a House hearing last March, and after Comey's firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to lead a special counsel investigation. He is authorized to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 election, its possible links to the Trump campaign, and "any matters that may arise directly from the investigation". Feinstein told reporters that she didn't tell Grassley beforehand, and "I owe him an apology and I will give him an apology as soon as I see him".

The report tracks Russian efforts in 19 countries, chronicling misinformation campaigns, the funding of far-right political causes and the manipulation of energy supplies long before 2016 in an attempt to glean lessons for USA officials considering how to counteract similar efforts here.

TRUMP: We'll see what happens.

And moving on to the final part, Kimmel actually couldn't help but agree with Trump: "And, as for the part about Russian Federation and the world laughing at our stupidity?"

Richard Gates, Manafort's business associate, was also indicted, along with former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty separately to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Fox News' John Roberts asked Trump if he would be willing to sit down for questioning by special counsel Robert Mueller, and what preconditions he might demand.

Trump was speaking during a joint press conference alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg following a meeting at the White House. "Three in four Republicans, 74 percent, say it's likely Trump will be cleared of wrongdoing in the Russian Federation probe this year. I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you".

The Trump White House originally said it dismissed Comey in May on the recommendation of Justice Department leadership, because of his controversial handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of State.

"When they have no collusion and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview", he said. "And the president only risks some inadvertent misstatement becoming a new national narrative by doing that".

Trump said past year that he would be "100%" willing to testify under oath about his conversations with Comey.
